As a society we love our polls. As sports fans polls have almost become as important as the actual sports themselves.

There are preseason polls, in-season polls that entire shows are built around, way too early to predict polls, and numerous ones polling who is the best such and such at whatever. I’m pretty sure there’s even a poll that polls which polls should be polled.

Even when it is not football season, it is still football season.

In addition to spring camps, summer workouts, and fall camps leading up to the regular season for colleges all over the country, recruiting is a vital aspect of the offseason as well.

Recruiting is the lifeblood for any good college football program, and the summer is often when recruits will make their decisions public, or the ground work is laid by the coaching staffs to the recruits, their families, and advisors, in order to help the young men decide which school feels like “home.”

There are a lot of great things to love about the NBA free agency period, such as seeing which players end up where and for how much.

This year has been extremely interesting in that regard. One of the things that I always look forward is the aftermath once all the dust has settled. For all those teams that make a big splash and get the guys they’re looking for there are those teams that miss out on their targets and are left with a drastically different team than the previous year.
